DigiBete Website for T1 Diabetes

Summary

DigiBete is a unique video web platform and social enterprise, created by a patient-led initiative and the Leeds Children and Young People’s Diabetes Team. The content is designed to help children, young people and their families self-manage diabetes by extending the reach of clinical teams online. Videos on the website support them on their diabetes journey, providing essential information at diagnosis, age-appropriate educational videos and generic emergency advice for common acute complications. Written resources produced by the Leeds team are held on the site, to help reduce requests for additional paper copies. It also has downloads of national and international guidelines, UK audit reports, structured education documents and academic resources, available to professionals and parents alike. Launched in August 2016, the web platform is constantly evolving, with new content added regularly.
